Iowa Gun Owners

Statewide Media Campaign Launched to Pass Stand-Your-Ground Law!

As you know, Iowa Gun Owners relies on grassroots pressure to advance or defeat legislation in the Capitol and to hold legislators accountable at election time. With your help, 35 anti-gun incumbents have been booted from office by mobilized gun owners over the past few election cycles. That’s why we’re on the verge of passing the largest gun bill that Iowa has ever seen! But we can’t let up on

Stand Your Ground Law Clears the Iowa House - At a Cost!

Yesterday afternoon the Iowa House passed Stand-Your-Ground law by a vote of 58-39! Even better, after your calls and emails into the House leadership team, they put both criminal and civil immunity language back into this bill via a floor amendment! Thank you so much for calling and emailing them — it made all the difference! This means that unless there is probable cause to believe that you violated Iowa’s

Gun Owners in Bettendorf Need Our Help!

There’s a lot going on in the Capitol right now on gun legislation that we’ll update you on later tonight — but this is an urgent request from gun owners in Bettendorf. I hope that you’ll read this brief email, and take immediate action! Tonight, at 7pm, the Bettendorf City Council will be taking the first step in the process to make it illegal for you to carry or possess

Video Update on Status of Stand-Your-Ground Legislation!

This last week in the legislature brought some dangerous developments on the omnibus gun bill that is making its way through the legislative process. All too often, moderates in House leadership are the first to cut a deal — and your gun rights suffer as a result. That’s what happened last Wednesday. Please watch the video update that I’ve prepared for you below.   Now that you know what the

We Made a Mistake!

“My understanding is that the lack of that language in the House version is a mistake, and will be put right. I hope that is true.” So said WHO radio’s Simon Conway Monday during his drive time radio show, as more and more Iowans are seeing what Iowa Gun Owners has been saying for over a week now. You see, while Senator Rick Bertrand’s Stand-Your-Ground law (SF 262) contains the

Multiple Gun Shows Happening Today in Iowa!

I just wanted to take a moment to remind you that Iowa Gun Owners will be at two gun shows today in opposite parts of the state. If you live in the NE part of Iowa, come out and see us at the gun show in Waterloo! We’re at the Cattle Congress building and we’re here until 5pm! If you’re in Western Iowa, we’ll be at the Sheldon Armory until

Major Developments on Stand-Your-Ground Law!

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re on the verge of making some major progress for the Second Amendment here in Iowa! This is going to be a lengthy email – there are a lot of things you need to know about. After hearing from legions of gun owners over the Stand-Your-Ground law issue, Senator Brad Zaun has informed Senator Bertrand that he’ll be advancing Stand-Your-Ground law in a

Sit Down and Be Quiet, the Adults Will Handle This!

“Sit down and be quiet, the adults will handle this,” –- that’s the message coming out of Senate Judiciary Chairman Brad Zaun right now here in Des Moines. With the legislature about to gavel in here for the week, I hope you’ll take a moment to contact Senator Zaun right away and urge him to support SF 262, Stand-Your-Ground law for Iowa! You see, there’s an old game in Des

Why is Senator Brad Zaun Opposing Stand-Your-Ground Law for Iowans?

There must be something in the Senate Judiciary Chairman’s gavel. From 2009 – 2010, former Judiciary Chairman Keith Kreiman refused to advance Stand-Your-Ground law. So Iowa Gun Owners did what we do best and exposed him in his district at election time — and gun owners threw Kreiman out of office as a result! For the next few years, it was Senator Steve Sodders. Sodders infamously blocked Stand-Your-Ground as the

Rep. Ako Abdul Samad Files More Aggressive Gun Control!

Can you imagine being sentenced to 5 YEARS in prison and paying a fine of $7,500 all for giving your grandson a Ruger 10/22 with one of the common 30-round mags that almost all of us own? Unbelievable, right? But that’s exactly what the latest round of gun control coming out of the House would do, if the sponsor, Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad has his way! In a moment, I’ll give
